Pittsburgh last played the Chargers in 2019, a primetime matchup the Steelers ended up winning 24-17. That was with Devlin Hodges at QB.
The Steelers lead the all-time series against the Chargers 24-10. In the Mike Tomlin era, Pittsburgh is 5-2 against Los Angeles with their losses coming in 2012 and 2018.
Week 11 will mark the ninth all-time primetime meeting between these two teams. The two teams are 4-4 in the previous eight matchups.
Pittsburgh will get to face QB Justin Herbert for the first time. Herbert, first round pick of LA a year ago, was named the offensive rookie of the year in 2020 throwing 31 touchdowns and over 4300 yards.
